Bishop Abraham Yel Nhial is one of the few Lost Boys of Sudan who have resettled in the United States and then chose to return to now South Sudan.

He speaks at colleges, schools, churches, and community-conscious groups around the USA about the Lost Boys of Sudan and the plight of the Sudanese during the decades-long civil war raging in his country. He resides in Aweil, South Sudan but comes to the US for a couple of months each year to minister to his brothers (The Lost Boys) as well as raise awareness to the plight of his beloved South Sudanese people.
